The Queen, normally known for her palatial residences such as Balmoral, Buckingham Palace and Sandringham, has a new property - a run-down, rat-infested mid-terrace house.
The red-brick building is valued at about £35,000 and is located in Gorton, east Manchester, where the hit show Shameless, is filmed.
It has been abandoned for about ten years and has had several windows boarded up after repeated attacks by vandals.
The two-bed property on Parkdale Avenue would be a little more snug than Her Majesty is used to, should she choose to move in.
It has two reception rooms, a small yard at the rear but only one bathroom, so queues for the shower would be inevitable when HRH hosted visiting heads of state.
But the house, which was converted into two flats in the 1990s, is only a five-minute walk from nearby Belle View railway station, allowing her easy access to the city centre if the royal train is available.
Security would not be a worry, as her modest new property is already fitted with an alarm.
It is located only a stone's throw from the local community centre, should the Queen wish to meet her local subjects.
The new royal residence came to light after neighbours complained to Manchester City Council at the state of the empty and dilapidated property.
Housing chiefs attempted to trace the owners and discovered the house had been owned by a company which had since closed down.
They tracked down the son of one of the firm's former directors who said he had no interest in reclaiming the house.
Because of a quirk of history, and the location of the house, the rights of the property passed to the Duchy of Lancaster which is controlled by the Queen.
The council has now written to the Queen's solicitors asking them to take ownership of the property with a view to selling it.
Any cash raised will go to charities, Jubilee Trust and the Duchy of Lancaster Benevolent Fund.
